2014-10-06KEYS: Restore partial ID matching functionality for asymmetric keysDmitry Kasatkin1-0/+3
Bring back the functionality whereby an asymmetric key can be matched with a partial match on one of its IDs. Whilst we're at it, allow for the possibility of having an increased number of IDs.

2014-09-16KEYS: Implement binary asymmetric key ID handlingDavid Howells1-0/+38
Implement the first step in using binary key IDs for asymmetric keys rather than hex string keys. The previously added match data preparsing will be able to convert hex criterion strings into binary which can then be compared more rapidly. Further, we actually want more then one ID string per public key. The problem is that X.509 certs refer to other X.509 certs by matching Issuer + AuthKeyId to Subject + SubjKeyId, but PKCS#7 messages match against X.509 Issuer + SerialNumber. This patch just provides facilities for a later patch to make use of. Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com> Acked-by: Vivek Goyal <vgoyal@redhat.com>
2012-10-08KEYS: Implement asymmetric key typeDavid Howells1-0/+25
Create a key type that can be used to represent an asymmetric key type for use in appropriate cryptographic operations, such as encryption, decryption, signature generation and signature verification. The key type is "asymmetric" and can provide access to a variety of cryptographic algorithms. Possibly, this would be better as "public_key" - but that has the disadvantage that "public key" is an overloaded term.
